We look forward to meeting you, and very much hope that you choose to study with us.
Dr Edwin Bacon, Head of School of Social and Political Sciences
“The teaching on my course really blew my mind in many respects – it completely shifted my thinking and gave me a new perspective on our society, the power structures within it, and how people drive change. The lecturers of the School of Social and Political Science each bring their passion, expertise, and personal experience to their teaching, and make what could perhaps be considered quite dusty, scholarly topics into really alive and relevant lenses through which to look at the world we as young people must now navigate. They absolutely inspired me to be an agent of change, rather than just a passive holder of knowledge.”
